Bitch and Animal had a pretty successful run on the queercore circuit at the top of the decade. But the duo format became oppressive, says Bitch. We wanted to do different things, she recalls. I was more interested in going a little more personal with my writing. She wasnt. We were growing in different directions. Make This Break This alt-folk (complete with electric violin and ukulele) is more in tune with her songwriting these days. Politics, romance, and serial-killer Aileen Wuornos all collide in a tangle of lo-fi sounds. I rely on moments of pain to feed me creatively, says Bitch.
